The 2019 Stars & Guitars lineup is the biggest one yet. We’re unveiling them one at a time. Here’s our second artist!

Morgan Wallen
Morgan Wallen is carving his own distinct path in modern Country music. With two #1 hits under his belt (2018’s PLATINUM-certified song of the summer “Up Down” feat. Florida Georgia Line and multi-week GOLD-certified chart-breaker “Whiskey Glasses”) and his debut album hailed as one of Taste of Country’s “Best of 2018,” the hit-making singer-songwriter’s authenticity continues to connect, resulting in over 1 BILLION total career streams to date.

One of MusicRow’s 2019 Next Big Thing artists and a 2019 CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year Award nominee, the Tennessee native has simultaneously struck out as a songwriter, co-penning hits for Jason Aldean (including PLATINUM-certified #1 “You Make It Easy”), Kane Brown, A Thousand Horses and Dustin Lynch. Wallen has made national television appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and TODAY, and has been called “disarming and unapologetic” by Rolling Stone.
